Review: Lush 'No drought" Dry Shampoo




First of all I LOVE how this smells. It smells like lemon candy. OMG soooooo good. But that's all I really like about this. There are a few problems with No Drought. And although I love the smell it's not enough to make me want to buy it EVER again. 

First of all it's white...like white white. I have thick dark brown/black hair and it leaves a grey cast in my hair...not very attractive. TIP: Do not apply the dry shampoo to your normal part in your hair. Instead section off your hair, if you have thick hair like mine section it off a couple of times, and apply it to the roots. By applying it to other sections of your hair you can kind of hide the ugliness of the white cast. 

Second if you've got thick hair applying this in one section, not enough. I actually apply it in three sections and it still doesn't absorb much oil. How I use this is by applying it to my roots, rubbing it into my scalp and about a centimetre into my hair with my fingers then leaving it in for a couple of minutes and brushing it out. But honestly I don't feel like it does anything. My hair doesn't feel less oily it just feels heavy. 

You get sooo much product with this and it'll last you a very long time. However, I still wouldn't recommend this for anyone with dark hair. There are plenty of dry shampoos on the market that are more effective and don't leave a grey cast, so personally for me I would go quality over quantity.

Cons
- White cast
- Ineffective
- Too much product 
Note: Lush provides an expiry date (approximately a year from purchase). Even if you were to use No Drought every second day no one would be able to finish a bottle. Therefore maybe Lush should give the option of a smaller bottle at a lower price point. However I wouldn't get rid of the product just because of the expiry. Unless something was wrong with it, the consistency changed or something along those lines.

Pros
- SCENT
- Value for money

Rating: 2/5

Where and how much: Lush - $13.95

Review: ColorBurst Lipstick in Petal and Peach

Claim: "Revlon ColorBurst Lipstick has a formula that feels weightless on the lips. It includes innovative pigments that delivers high impact colour in one swipe. The elasticolour formulation is designed to distribute rich colour pigments evenly over the lips and allows for a comfortable feel. The formula is also enriched with moisturisers and antioxidants such as sweet almond oil to improve lip texture and prevent drying." (from www.beautyheaven.com.au)



Packaging: Love, Love, Love. It's gorgeous. The quilted pattern, the tops (showing quite an accurate representation of the colour) and the way REVLON is embossed on the lpstick itself, reminds me of high-end packaging. 



Formula: They are smooth and easy to apply. The colour payoff is actually quite sheer, so to get good coverage you need to really build it up and if you have more pigmented lips then your lip colour will definitely show through. Even with my medium pigmented lips, my natural lip colour shows through.

Empties: #3 (Skincare)

As a reference I have combination skin. Non sensitive and not acne prone. 

1. Biore Revitalise 4-in-1 Self Foaming Cleanser This is my second bottle of this cleanser. I love it. For the first few uses it tingles slightly on the skin which I love however the tingling does stop after using the product for a while. It makes my face feel clean without being tight.
Would I repurchase? Definitely 
2. Warming Anti-Blackhead Cream Cleanser  This did NOTHING for me. I have blackheads all around my nose and this did nothing to diminish them. The product itself doesn't warm up for long, the heat last for around 10 seconds and really doesn't do anything. It has very, very small exfoliating beads (ingredients) but personally I prefer something a bit more rough because this one just did nothing for me.  
Would I repurchase? Definitely no
3. Garnier Clean Sensitive 2 in 1 Gentle Make-up Remover Love, Love, Love. This is really good value for an awesome makeup remover. I only use this for my eye make…
